In Alaska, the pinnacle of adventure experience and variety is found on the Kenai Peninsula. In the center of this peninsula, on the banks of the states most famous angling stream, sits Great Alaska adventure lodge. This historic Lodge, base camp for early homesteaders and the Peninsula's first float plane service sits in full view of the massive Harding Ice Field and the confluence of two mighty rivers. It is the base from which you will explore the wonders of Alaska's favorite playground.
Your stay will include riverfront rooms, complimentary Happy Hour, coffee to your door wake-ups, regular float plane watching, wine with your table-side service, a view to die for and after-dinner kayaking and fishing in the land of the midnight sun. the magic of Alaska's renowned Wilderness and Wildlife will fill your days and anglers will spend their hours in pursuit of some o f the largest game fish on earth. It is all yours while our guest at Great Alaska.
Very few travel accommodations will capture your heart as will this intimate lodge in the jungles of Costa Rica. Accessed only by boat, the property faces east on the Caribbean Sea and west to the estuary of two rivers where huge tarpon, Snook, and countless more fish species provide legendary fishing memories. Your stay will include exploration of one of the world's great bird populations and up close photos of the jungles' exotic animals---Saltwater Crocodiles, Sloth, Manatee, and the famous Tortuguero National Park Turtle Nesting Grounds. Our "Best of Costa Rica" trip includes whitewater rafting, zip lining, Hot Pool Soaking and Volcano watching for those that want to do it all.
The Intimate lodge on 100 private acres of monkey filled trees, features large rooms with exotic jungle hardwoods, a riverside dining pavilion, an open bar, coffee to your door wake-ups and healthy cuisine that includes the fruits and seafood bounty of the jungle and sea. The daily morning and afternoon activities include fishing and or jungle tours' your choice. Hard core Anglers and Family Adventurers alike will appreciate the beauty of and intimacy of Jungle Tarpon Lodge and one of the world's most renowned Tarpon fishing and Jungle Eco destinations.
We traveled the Yucatan Peninsula in search of the perfect combination---a blend of white, relatively undiscovered sand, and world class game fish. After 25 years of search on the Yucatan, we concluded it didn't exist. A flip of a coin decided us to try one last uninspected spot the island of Holbox. Our first step onto the island told us we had made the right decision. The beauty of the beach and the unique and real charm of this village will capture your traveler's heart. The island is a Super Star.
The picture was made complete when the locals described the Giant Tarpon fish that gathered offshore in the summer and the prodigious baby Tarpon and Snook, along with countless other species that filled the flats and the lagoons. And then we discovered it is one of the primary Whale Shark feeding grounds, a landing spot for migrating Flamingo Colonies, a world class windsurfing destination and a really nice warm water kayaking situation. We knew we had found that perfect island (since called one of the Worlds Best Islands by National Geographic Adventure Magazine.). You too will fall under its charm.
The lodge, called Holbox Fly fishing Lodge, is the first property on the island dedicated to Fishing although as you have read above, there is plenty to do for the non-fisher person. You will be pampered with coffee to your door wake-ups, waterfront air conditioned rooms, complimentary happy hour with scrumptious Ceviche hors d oeuvres, our famous Mexican night, a rod washing station and fly tying bench, daily fishing and nature activities and a terrazzo from which you will watch some of the best sunsets of your travel career.
